Your math may be correct but not sure if you get the format. The specials are about running as fast as you can, not maintaining an average speed. The miles/time shown in the stage schedule relates to maximum time allotted for the stage.

As Stagehand mentioned it's about how comfortable you are going fast. I have not done RWV yet but every RallyMoto event I have participated in the top riders have had race stage speed averages over 60 mph, top speeds in the 100+ range.
